Alright, this is something I wanted to do for ages, so here it is:
crazygoat weekly tutorials!
Today I am going to show everyone blow-by-blow on how to make a symmetry drawpad, feel free to use this in any of your projects or extend it, I do not ask for credit but it would be helpful to put one, if you complete this tutorial can you please comment with link and (optional) screenshot!
alright, let's get started!
p.s. Like if you liked this tutorial, I'm not trying to beg for likes, I just want to know if people actually like this, otherwise I won't spend hours making this!
Part 1 - the basic drawpad
first, press the plus button on the bottom to create a new project:
now tap on "Blank Project"
press the gray "+" button on the top right corner and drag out "text"
when prompted with "set text" press cancel
add a new rule:
tap on "more"
Tap on "_____ is pressed
Now tap on the arrow on the "drawing" section to expand
Drag out the "leave a trail" block
tap on the bubble next to color
tap on the color you want, I'm going to choose blue.
Now tap on the bubble near "width" and type in "5"
Remove the move forward block by dragging it out
drag the "set position" block into the "leave a trail" block
Tap on the bubble next to "X" on the "set position" block
tap values and tap the little arrow next to "text"
now press "last touch X"
now tap on the bubble next to "Y"
go to IPad's values and tap on "last touch Y"
Now get out of the rule by tapping the little "X" on the top left
add a new rule
Tap on "iPad is tapped"
Tap on the arrow next to movement to expand
Drag out the "set position" block
tap on the bubble next to "X" and then tap on values
Now put in "last touch X" for the bubble next to "X" and "last touch Y" for the bubble next to the "Y"
Now exit out of rule!
Part 2 - symmetry!
Drag out another text object
Add new rule
For "when" tap "____ is pressed"
Expand "Drawing" and drag out "Leave a trail"
Tap the bubble beside "color" and chose the color you want, I am going to choose red
Now tap the bubble next to "width" and type in 5
Drag out the ""move forward"" block and drag in the "set position" block
tap on the bubble "X" and choose the "___ - ___" bubble in the bottom left corner
Now tap the first bubble on the "____-____" bubble and select the "____(divided by)_____" bubble
Now tap the first bubble in the "____(divided by)_____" bubble and select the variable "Width" in "Ipad's values"
Image is self explanatory (too long for me to explain)
Now tap the gray arrow next to "iPad's Values"
select the second bubble of the second Minus and select "X position", you should see "Text X position"
Tap on the first bubble of the second minus and tap the "____(divided by)_____" bubble on the bottom-left corner
(sorry, no picture)
Tap the first bubble of the third minus (the one we just put in) and select "width" in "iPad's Values"
Picture self explanatory (too complex to say in words)
select the bubble next to the "Y" and select "last touch Y" from "iPad's values"
- smooth backgrounds
- scenes / levels
- Hi - five game
Again, thanks for reading!
So, how good was this, @Liza and any other people from hopscotch team? (sorry, I can't remember any other names now)
